What is Tinted Sunscreen?
Sunscreen is essential for keeping your skin protected while out in the sun. In addition to helping to avoid sunburn while actually in the sun, it has also been shown to help reduce the long-term risks associated with excessive sun exposure. Since it blocks the damaging effects of the sun, however, it will also slow down the tanning process that many people desire. This is why tinted sunscreen is such a great option. When applied, tinted sunscreen will not only add the protective barrier to your skin but will also give you that little bit of color that you desire. You can purchase this type of sunscreen in many different shades to help match your natural skin tone so that you have that beautiful sun kissed look that you desire, without putting yourself at risk for a painful sunburn.
How to Get Tinted Sunscreen Out of Clothes?
While the benefits of tinted sunscreen are that it helps to give your skin some color, the downside can be that it can cause discoloration on your clothes. Fortunately, you can generally get tinted sunscreen out of your clothes without much trouble. Simply follow these steps:
• Flush the Stain - Start by turning the stained clothes inside out and running cold water through the stained area.
• Blot the Stain - Using a mixture of warm water and either laundry detergent or liquid dish soap blot the stained area.
• Launder as Usual - Once you have removed the majority of the stain with the above steps, immediately put it into your washing machine with a heavy-duty detergent and wash with warm or hot water.
How to Apply Tinted Sunscreen
Tinted sunscreen can be applied in the same general way as any other sunscreen. The big difference, however, is that if you have any uneven spots it will be much more obvious. With this in mind, the best way to apply tinted sunscreen is to start by putting a small amount on your hands and applying it to your face. From there, work your way down your body applying it evenly to all exposed skin. Only add small amounts of the sunscreen to your hands at a time so it is not to thick. For any hard to reach areas, ask a loved one to apply it for you.
Does Tinted Sunscreen Cause Acne?
Many people believe that sunscreen in general, and tinted sunscreen specifically, can clog your pours and cause acne. The fact is, however, that this is not the case. Modern sunscreen is actually formulated to provide your skin with vitamins and moisturizer while protecting you from the sun. If you do have an unwanted reaction from tinted sunscreen it is possible that you are allergic to one of the ingredients.
